Q. Do MSDSs prepared under U.S. OSHA HCS meet Canadian requirements?

A. No. The WHMIS supplier MSDS and label requirements are more prescriptive than those set out under the HCS.

The categories of information which must be addressed on a MSDS are set out in section 12 and Schedule I to the CPR. However, in recognition of other regulatory programs, with certain caveats, Canada does accept the International Labour Organization 16-heading MSDS format.

The information, including hazard symbols, which must be disclosed on a WHMIS supplier label are prescribed in section 19 of the CPR. The information must be disclosed in both English and French and must be enclosed within a "hatched" border as depicted in Schedule III to the CPR.
